Teaching Strategies for an Active Learning Classroom

Greg Freix, School of Business

My Class Is Over: Capturing and Analyzing Students' Learning (Before I Forget About It)

Doug Ward, Center for Teaching Excellence and School of Journalism; Joshua Potter, Center for Teaching Excellence
Wednesday, December 5, 2018 – 12:00pm-1:30pm - BEST 220 & ZOOM

Lee Shulman called it “pedagogical amnesia,” a condition characterized by the inability to recall the results of our experiences teaching a course. In this workshop, you will learn what materials to collect and what prompts to use to document your teaching, which will help you next time you teach a course, as well as help you prepare for reviews. With Joshua Potter, CTE and Doug Ward, CTE/Journalism and Mass Communications.
